My dehumidifier runs well, it is only 1 year old,it worked great last year. This year the fan runs and the humdity sensor works, but there is no water at all in the basin. Do you have any solution to my problem?
It also doesn't look like anything is clogged, it is just not dehumidifying.

If your carpet is wet ... like mine was ... the best thing to do is bite the bullet and get the carpet out of your basement or where ever it is ... so your dehumidifier has a chance.
You reduce the % on the machine to reduce the humidity in your room. You should probably also get some fans going.
I have removed my carpet and padding and everything that I can reasonably remove from the room. I have 4 fans going and 2 dehumidifiers and two sump pumps. I also keep the windows open in the day time because it is more dry outside than in the basement. I have heat in the basement which I run at night. My goal is to save my house from damage due to moisture. It will be a good month for the electric company, that is for sure.
I'm sorry you are in this perdiciment ... I'm sorry for me too. My carpet was less than a year old and we have not had any water in the basement for 30 years.
If the room temperature is close to 60, the coils may be frozen (completely encased in ice). If this is the case, move it where the water can drain off - about 1 gallon which may NOT run into the drain bucket. I out mine over the floor drain. Turn off and it will defrost over night. Only specially made dehumidifiers work below a room temp of 60 degrees (the temp of a basement in winter). Does it need to be running? A digital humidity sensor from Radio Shack is cheap and may tell you the humidity is OK - only 50% or less.
Check float switch some of the unit have afloat switch hooked to the unit. Next check the condenser coilsThey do get stopped up cat,dog hair and just plain get dirty vaccuum them out and try unit. Rusty
It is more than likely the compressor is not running, only the fan. It seams that the humidity sensor is flaky on these units. You can, operate the unit, by opening up the dehumidifier and unplug the sensor from the main board. The unit will cycle on and off and remove the water from the air.....good luck
